[Desktop equivalent] - Ambient sound mixer

Reddit - Fri, 2017-06-23 12:06

Hello everyone,

Here's a software request. :)

I recently discovered a website called Ambient Mixer. The website is great... but :

  1. I happen to have my own sounds located on my hd, already sorted and ready to go.
  2. I don't have access to the website when I need to have ambient mix (no internet connection).
  3. I'm not willing to crack $16 per hour of ambient generated, neither to have to download and store 80+MB per file.
  4. I'm not really at ease regarding my financial funds, so I don't have a high-priced laptop to run 10+ tabs in a webbrowser.
  5. I could code a similar application running in JS or anything, but I'm sure I'm not the first one with such an idea...

So, does anyone knows a desktop equivalent of such a website, which would allow me to loop and mix my sounds the same easy way; and save my configurations ?

Thank you in advance for your answers! :)
